Live - Lloyd Cole and The Commotions

Live
Formed in 1982 and signed to their first big record deal in 1984, Lloyd Cole And The Commotions were one of the most successful 'Indie' acts in the UK, and oft-quoted as influences to many other subsequently famous bands.

The band made an immedate impact on a generation of alternative music fans and for some time were vying with The Smiths in terms of popularity.

Recorded in 1984 at The Marquee London, and interspersed with pastiche band shots, this excellent live concert was produced and directed by Mike Mansfield.

Everything’s Shining Bright, the Lazy Recordings 1985-87 2CD
*** WE HAVE A VERY LIMITED AMOUNT OF SIGNED COPIES AVAILABLE, PLEASE ORDER NOW TO GET YOUR COPY!! ***

(PLEASE NOTE ALL SIGNED COPIES ARE NOW SOLD OUT!!)

Back in the mid-80s, The Primitives combined the fuzz guitars of The Jesus & Mary Chain with the pop sensibilities of Blondie and a nod to cult heroes The Velvet Underground. They swiftly rose from being a popular Indie guitar outfit to charting worldwide with "Crash”, kickstarting a craze in bands fronted by blonde female singers (Transvision Vamp, The Darling Buds et al).
Between 1985 and 1987, the band issued five singles/EP’s on independent label Lazy Records (also home to My Bloody Valentine and later Birdland) before signing with RCA.
Everything’s Shining Bright is named after their planned Lazy Records album, which was abandoned when the band left the label – indeed, seven of the ten previously unissued tracks here stem from those scotched LP sessions. Also unearthed is the band’s very first demo from 1985, consisting of three tracks including a dry-run through their eventual hit "Crash”.
This 2-CD set also boasts their promo-only live album at the ICA; as such, it offers their entire Lazy output from that period.
Those Lazy singles in full:
Thru The Flowers (May 1986) Indie No.20
Really Stupid (October 1986) Indie No.3
Stop Killing Me (February 1987) Indie No.2
Thru The Flowers (New Version - August 1987) Indie No.3
Ocean Blue (gig freebie 7”)
Compiled with guitarist PJ Court, this 2-CD compilation boasts re-mastered music as well as a beautifully annotated booklet boasting rare photos and personal memories from the band.

Release Date: 25/03/2013

Sebastopol Rd: Expanded Edition

3 loop music are proud to announce the release of Mega City Four’s "Sebastopol Rd” as a 39 track, 2CD expanded edition.

 

  • Remastered
  • 2CD set covering all the studio output from the Sebastopol Rd era
  • 10 previously unreleased tracks
  • Compiled by the band
  • Includes 16 page booklet with sleevenotes from the band, rare photos and memorabilia

 

Sebastopol Rd was Mega City Four’s first album for their new major label home, Big Life. With the success of debut album "Tranzphobia”, follow up "Who Cares Wins”, and a constant touring schedule around the UK, Europe and the US they built up a solid, devoted fanbase easily identifiable in one of the many MC4 t-shirts. By this time, the band were appearing on the front covers of the NME and Melody Maker and the crossover to a major label was no great surprise.

 

Teaming up with producer Jessica Corcoran (Senseless Things, Ned’s Atomic Dustbin, Shed Seven and The Wonder Stuff) gave the album a pop-punk crunch and more emphasis on the pop than previous material. It features the Top 40 hit ‘Stop’, ‘Prague’, covered by Muse in 2010 on the Resistance single as a tribute to the band who had influenced them, and CD1 now includes the two singles (plus their attendant b-sides) Words That Say and Shivering Sand, their highest charting release.

 

This 2CD set, 21 years after the initial release, gathers together all the studio material from this period and adds 10 previously unreleased tracks, including demos and the John Peel Session from September 1993. It includes all the b-sides and demos taken from the box loads of cassettes and DATs in guitarist Gerry’s shed.

 

FURTHER INFORMATION

The quartet of school friends from Farnborough, Hampshire, formed Mega City Four in 1987. They went on to release five studio albums and are cited as an influence by Muse, one of the biggest bands in the world today. They were always an incendiary live band putting in thrilling performances and winning a devoted fanbase. Leadman and chief songwriter, Wiz sadly passed away suddenly in 2006 leaving a legacy of fast-paced, crunching power pop songs that are often overlooked by many who regard this era of music as the template for much of the emo scene today.

C86 – THE DELUXE EDITION (3CD Boxset)
Cherry Red is delighted to release this deluxe 3 CD boxset edition of the original iconic NME indie cassette compilation.

Curated by the same team behind last year’s award-winning 5-CD box set Scared To Get Happy, this highly anticipated reissue will be
housed in a 'clamshell'-style hinged box, with a chunky booklet including a 11,500-word sleeve-note by Neil Taylor and lots of pretty pictures.

In the NME's own words...


"
The album, first released on a cassette with NME in 1986, went on to inspire a generation of indie bands and features music by Primal Scream, The Pastels, Shop Assistants and The Wedding Present among many others.


Former NME writer Neil Taylor, who assisted in compiling the original 22 track album nearly 30 years ago, has written the liner notes for the reissue and helped with the curation of two bonus discs of material which will include songs exclusive to CD and some never released before including tracks by The Love Act, North of Cornwallis and Paul Groovy & The Pop Art Experience."
